I bought the Centrios radio many years ago and stopped using it because it lost Web radio access.  I just came across it the other day and was wondering if anyone every tried adding a Bluetooth dongle instead of a Wifi dongle.  Would this even be possible?  I imagine it would require different firmware, but it would be awesome to be able to stream music from a Smartphone to the radio via Bluetooth.

Hi, It would be a major task to add that to the firmware. Costing so much time that it would be easier and cheaper to just buy a raspberry pi and get it all ruinng on that.
On the other hand.. the Centrios is working fine with just Internet radio..
